Who:

We Asked:

Who is someone you admire and why?
“I would say Martin Luther King because I’m very interested by his story right now. What he has achieved is extraordinary. Yes, I love history too, ahhh.”

How and when did you become a model?
“It’s a very funny story, I was walking around Paris with my sister, she noticed a photographer who was photographing models. One of the observer, Gils, who became my agent, came to talk to us. He offered me to be a model, I did not believe it. After several months of reflection with my parents, I decided to embark on this adventure. A few days later, I made my first shoot, the next day, I’m still very surprised. I signed with my current agencies. Three days later, my agent Gils tells me that I have to go to New York for the Yves Saint Laurent show. It’s just a dream :-)”

What’s the most difficult thing you have ever done?
“I think, leaving my parents and going alone to the NYC, Milano, and London menswear shows.”
